Hmm...It was a tolerable enough place in the '80s. But now? It's a cheerless, characterless, largely unswabbed barn of a place.

I worked there in early 90`s under the management of Nick and Trina Long.Excellent times,unforgetable parties, fun,sales better than in De Hems Pub-Soho, great atmosphere,music,friends,Sunday karaoke,fully packed,regular customers,staff with wigs serving beer and dancing during closing up time,crowd in front of the entrance every evening.No London pub will ever have that atmosphere again.Who ruined this lovely pub with rating of 6,2?This is the only pub ever that had Belgrade`s party atmosphere transfered successfully into traditional pub`s atmosphere - mixture that worked perfectly.It really brings amazing memories...Those were the times!Love to come again,but due to visa problems...
